animated show CRUSADER RABBIT a daily 5 minute
mostly tongue in cheek kiddie serial. Besides the
title character there was sidekick RAGGS TIGER.
The voice actress Lucille Bliss spoke for the rabbit and Vern Loudon gabbled for Raggs.
Bliss and Loudon were associated with TV station
KRON-TV San Francisco. I believe the cartoon
premiered in about 1951 so it's contemporary with
this film for Heinz. Rabbit ran nightly on KRON
and resembles the later Rocky & Bullwinkle.

IF the journey starts at the field as Heinz clearly believe it does then why not follow a tomato from the field on it's CONTINUED JOURNEY, along the overhead basket conveyor, into the factory, through allsorts of processes and packaging machines, into a box, and THEN out into a truck to be delivered via any one of their multitudinous Art Deco regional depots?
It's no exaggeration to say that this fillum needs a ruddy great slab of production ladled into the middle of it - like The Great American Chocolate Factory [which starts in some Tropical plantation and winds up in some school kids cake-hole via Hershey, Pensylvania] or This is Hormel.
Hell, I want to know about Ketchup and Apple Cider Vinegar, I want to see Baby Food being turned from fresh raw ingredients to tinned vomit in lurid, enthusiastic, detail!
I am so frustrated that this film only tells a fraction of the Heinz journey, and even more frustrated that no other more comprehensive Heinz film exists on this website.
Nice Materials Handling footage though!

Although I wish I also got "daily rubdowns by electric grooming devices" as the Heinz delivery horses did, alas I am of a later era, not the one when "much of a housewife's food was largely seasonal". Much was large indeed.
But on to Sharpsburg, PA where Heinz started. It could be anywhere, because it is *distribution* that is key to selling 57 varieties.
Oh, and by the way it is "ketchup" not "catsup".
So while we watch stack upon stack of boxes in warehouses destined for deliverey to your neighborhood store, remember that it is glistening (not merely gleaming) white motor trucks that are "kept spic and span - as clean and wholesome as the food they transport" that you depend on. And when you pick up a can of tomato soup you should see "the loving care of famous chefs who know when to say 'That's it!'"
"We in America are the best fed people on Earth"
That is all.
